Longing

Version 2
Amid the sparse vegetation of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California, a lone tree stands out.
 


Triple-digit day—
a tree in the wilderness
longs for winter’s rains.

  1. Reblogged this on Frank J. Tassone and commented:
    #Haiku Happenings #5: MMT’s latest haiku!

  2. Anza-Borrego is so beautiful. When I was growing up my family visited several times during the winter.

  3. Our earth needs nurturing ~ as your haiku expresses so well ~ ^_^

    Be Safe, Be Well,
    A ShutterBug Explores,
    aka (A Creative Harbor)

  4. Oh y goodness!! The thought of the heat just takes my breath away! I think we all can empathize with the tree. Wishing for a cool Autumn day here. Stay well and have a grand weekend!

  5. Rain… I don’t know if I remember what rain is… my yard is so dry that I sometimes think… I am in your desert…

  6. Yes, mostly triple digit days now. Beautiful desert photo!

  7. And soon it will dawn. 🙂 Over here, the rain pours;, intermittently. 🙂

  8. the heat relentless
    shimmering energy rises
    creating mirage

  9. I will gladly send you some rain. a lot. in exchange for those sun rays that I feel on my skin from your image.

  10. and…it’s longing shows in its wilted leaves and sparse branches. But still, it has much beauty. It seems to be the king of its surroundings.

  11. My dad called this popcorn fart dry weather. We may only get to 99 today after over a week of triple digits. Record highs during the day and record highest overnight lows. At this rate we may all be krispy kritters by summer’s end. Pulled to the mountains in the photo and haiku is spot on.

  12. Stay safe, remember to drink water
    much love…

  13. It is really very hot and humid here. That poor lonely tree probably doesn’t receive much water.

  14. we have had three afternoons of unexpected monsoon visitation! summer rains are revered here, cooling off these long hot days and refreshing our garden hearts.
